Experience the Best of Wales… On rails
The Cambrian Railway spans 120 miles of unspoilt natural beauty and is one of the most scenic rail routes in Britain.
From Shrewsbury in Shropshire, the Cambrian Main Line takes you over the border into Wales, through rugged mountain terrain, quaint market towns, World Heritage sites and castles, cross country towards the picturesque West coast of Wales. Here it merges into the Cambrian Coastal route offering spectacular views, coastal walks and places to visit along the length of the Gwynedd coast.
